I departed and came back around for 04L, with a very stutter 12-17 FPS approach. This is with a 5.3GHZ 8700K, 32GB DDR4 (2 x's 16GB), and a single 1080 Ti SC at max superclock. Thinking my settings may be unreasonable, I headed over to Flightbeam's KSFO, where I get about a very smooth 40-45FPS (With weather on this time // almost overcast), departed runway 28R, flew the 19R approach, everything was as smooth as silk in the very dense San Francisco Scenery (Orbx Norcal, Vector, etc). I'm a loyal Flytampa customer, however KBOS is in huge need of optimizations.

These numbers don't add up for that system. I have a much older i7@4Ghz, 1070 crap edition. I'm getting 40-45 @ Boston without Aerosoft's city. Enable the city & I'll get an aditional 5fps.

Stock SFO is running about 45-55fps for me with the same settings.
Boston runs better than all the NYC airports. 22fps over JFK looking towards the city.

You must have a bad setting that kicks off negatively over Boston. One new feature is the wet weather layer. If you have dynamic reflections enabled, this could rob you of 10fps; even in the dry. Move you Dynamic reflection shader full left. The wet reflections look better full left anyway.
You can disable it completly in the config tool.

FB SFO probably doesn't have any wet layers.

Our 3D characters are also very harsh so turn them off.


Would you mind sharing your settings/inspector profile and any config tweaks George? I have a 6700K at 4.5GHz and a 1070 and get quite poor performance at KBOS.

The terminals are near negligible in my tests & are optimized already.

It maybe worth mentioning Aerosofts Boston City improves performance over the Microsoft stock city.


Hi George,

Scenery looks great. I am getting OK fps. around 22-24. You have stated Aerosoft's Boston City does improve the performance? If so, I will purchase and try that. Do I need to do anything to with KBOS scenery after I install Boston City from Aerosoft?

My system is very high end. 16 core Threadripper, liquid cooled. GTX1080, 32GB of RAM, etc.

Thanks!

Yep, just follow these instructions. Nothing too difficult.
